What the hell is happening, the place is falling apart. The main man leaving, what’s next

Honest opinions and feedback please

I don’t work for DQ but have been offered some contact service work with them. I’ve historically worked for FMC and GE/Vetco and don’t know much about DQ. Website researching and it looks like some pretty decent and fit for purpose kit. I know DQ... —  read more

Dril quip let a new food trailer come to the plant. Over priced and the service was mediocre. I ordered from the rough out crew the day before it came and we got out food LAST. I figured since we pre ordered that we would get our food quick, but i... —  read more 


What to expect from the gathering. Any thoughts.

DQAP. Loyalty rewards?

Those that are retrenched. Asked to leave. Are now coming back daqp with much higher salary. Just after a few months. While those that are here working for years are only getting maximum 2 percent increment.

21 days and counting

Rumour has it there is going to be a mass exodus of folk jumping ship to OSS and FMC. A man's gotta eat and we couldn't free water in thw Sahara.

Is Blake's time finally up?

There is a rumour that the shareholders are asking for a meeting Blake to answer questions as they are unhappy with the progress of the restructure and proceeding with the center's of excellence.

Sounds Like Lies

When is the announcement coming on what company leased the FORGING and ROUGHOUT department

Song still the same

It sounds like nothing has changed since I left 2 years ago....Leaving has been the best thing to happen to me while at Dril-Quip. So what are they doing now ??? I suppose they could start selling some of Blake's Vinegar (it's really bad wine)

Anything on layoffs?

What's going on? Will there be any more layoffs at Dril-Quip any time soon? In all honesty, I'm hoping the answer is yes and my name is on the list. I really want to get out of here, and leaving with severance would be ideal. But knowing my luck... —  read more

5s / lean management

Every T card needs to be justified,in other words no it’s not going to happen,what an absolute shambles of a company, the management are clearly out of their depths...

Moral is at all time low

Moral is at all time low, even management know this. What are they going to do to fix this ? About time they sat down with the workforce and listened to there concerns.

Sheriff's office has been informed.

Friday is the day for Houston. We have a friend that works in the Sheriff's office who told us that DQ has requested police presence for Friday.
